Oct. 5, 2010 — Benjamin Houston, lecturer in history at Newcastle University and author of the book, “The Nashville Way: A Southern City and Racial Change,” discusses race, civil rights, and urban life in Nashville, Tennessee during the middle third of the twentieth century. In particular, he introduces the concept of “street theater” to describe how Jim Crow was played out by black and white Nashvillians as they navigated — and in some cases challenged — the racial etiquette of the city every day.
